ABSTRACT To increase the fatigue life of the material and to ensure the quality of shot peening effects, shot peening parameters should be optimized. In this paper correlations are made to characterize the intensity, saturation and coverage by varying the impingement angle, stand-off-distance, and supply pressure for manual shot peening. The manual peening conditions were successfully applied on 7050Al flat coupons and the results were found to be reproducible in Aluminum alloy.
